Free To Choose Medicine offers a compelling argument for the freedom of every patient, guided by the advice of his or her doctor, to make informed decisions about the use of not-yet-FDA-approved therapeutic drugs that are in late stages of clinical testing. After discussing the FDA’s current drug approval process, the author presents an easy-to-read, yet comprehensive case for the Free To Choose Medicine Act—a policy that would bring enormous benefits to patients in serious need of newly developed drugs, and that would reverse today’s trend toward increased governmental regulations. The book also deconstructs the false arguments of those who want to maintain the status quo of the FDA, or worse--those who demand ever-more-stringent FDA testing, which sometimes results in deadly over-caution. The passage of a Free To Choose Medicine Act would be a defining moment for Americans—a stake in the ground reminding us that control of medical decisions belongs, first and foremost, with individual patients and their doctors.

Probabilistic Medical Decision Making

This book explores the principles of probabilistic decision theory and shows how they work in real world situations. Decision theory is the calculus of uncertain outcomes and preferences and values. The great mathematician and economist Thomas Schelling defines decision theory as the science of choosing in accordance with one's existing preferences, maximizing the satisfaction of one's values. As the science of choosing, decision theory is the natural quantitative foundation of medical care and research and policy making. Decision theory is not fundamental. Unlike physics decision theory is not a set of basic laws and fundamental truths; it discovers no natural phenomena or concepts hidden from us and waiting to be found. Decision theory is a practical instrument which helps translate one's observations and objectives and values and preferences into one's actions. As a practical instrument decision theory is a set of invented rules and useful mathematical methods and tools. The role of these rules and methods and tools is to link human knowledge and assumptions (models) with captured data (observables) and with human preferences and values (valuables) and translate them into choices and, ultimately, actions. We invent these rules and methods and tools and we keep them only because they make sense and because they work. This book is a primer of probabilistic decision theory written for medical professionals, scientists and policy makers. It is a collection of mostly independent essays. Except for a few relatively tough spots which are marked as advanced, mathematics in this book is reasonably accessible.

The U.S. healthcare system will financially collapse in three to five years if we stay on our current path. Millions will lose their health insurance, thousands of doctors will leave medicine, wait times for medical care will dramatically increase, and quality of care will plummet. Saving Private Healthcare calls out the many problems in healthcare, including the new Obamacare law, then offers a pure, open-market, commonsense, and complete re-design of all sectors of our healthcare system with a sweeping new approach called The Saving Private Healthcare Initiative. "The Initiative" is both a powerful and easy-to-understand plan combined with a large organization of both private citizens and healthcare experts who will bring down healthcare costs by two-thirds or $2 trillion per year by 2022. We must have a complete solution to our healthcare crisis, a well-constructed implementation plan, as well as an open-market, energized movement to actually make it happen. Welcome to Saving Private Healthcare. "If there was ever a book for today, this is it. As well-intentioned lead-ers wrestle self-interest groups over health reform, this book offers commonsense direction and comprehensive guidelines on how we as a nation can dramatically lower healthcare costs without reducing everyone's access to high quality healthcare." — Ilene Little, CEO, Traveling4Health.com "This is the kind of out-of-the-box, innovative thinking that we need to restore affordability to our healthcare system using open-market, non-governmental solutions." — Dr. Alieta Eck, president, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

Understand what rational arguments strongly support the existence of free will and allow for ultimate meaning -- thus, the title of this book, Free To Decide.Many scientists prepare a compilation of their key scientific publications, but this book is unique because the full-length papers (each accompanied by text explaining why the experiments were done as well as the context of the work) are placed in a large appendix at the end.
